EverQuest 2 Including Battlegrounds: Uh… yeah? I mean, really? I guess that’s kind of cool, but as Spinks said, you don’t usually think “PvP” when EQ2 is brought up. I’m wondering if Battlegrounds are quickly becoming a standard, expected feature in MMOs, like Public Quests and Achievements.
Champions Gets A Pseud0-Expansion: Pseudo-Expansion — that’s what I’m going to call these not-quite-content-patches, not-quite-full-expansion additions to the game, a la EQ2′s adventure packs, WAR’s Land of the Dead, or Siege of Mirkwood. Anyway, Champions is adding a new high level zone in the future, among other additions and changes, and I think they have the potential to reap a nice PR windfall — as long as they don’t charge for it. Throw in a huge content chunk like this for free and it’ll serve well to strengthen bonds with the playerbase.
P.S. – Hudson, I don’t know what’s going on with your blog, but it keeps throwing ancient posts into my RSS reader. I just learned from you that Warhammer’s getting a delay!
